Good Morning Ladies,
Its our last day today so as you are reading this we will be getting packed up and on the road, well hopefully get packed up and have time to chill out for a couple of hours before we leave to take the girls and Lewis to the airport. I think though that once you are in the 'going home' mind set, you just want to get on and go, luckily our first hotel is that lovely place that we stopped at on the way down in Millau, Log Cabin in a lovely setting with views of the mountains. They had the thickest duvet, with crisp cotton covers that you just want to snuggle down in, although it was really hot when we were there the air con in the room you still felt like you could snuggle down. Which actually brings to mind another point and one of my travel tips, I always pack a 100% cotton sheet in our overnight bag, (along with pillows but thats just my OCD) mainly because hotels don't often have a top sheet, the first 2 hotels we stayed at didn't and they didn't have air con either, the rooms were stifling hot but I could never sleep with nothing over me, so we just pull back the duvet and put our own sheet on the bed, making it much easier to sleep and feel comfortable.
I will add that I scheduled this post a week or so ago so I haven't included any shopping you have sent me this past week, it will all be added to next weeks though. Which I am glad to have on standby to make my first week home a little easier.
Any way enough of my waffle here we go with todays crafts/shopping...…
Danielle made this amazing hand bag with Winnie The Pooh themed papers from the Pound Shop. The papers were called the Christopher Robin collection, it unbelievable that they were just a £1 as they are beautifully foiled.
Danielle made everything from the bow on the bag to the display box, made from Every Crafts a pound Acetate sheets.
The Bag itself is a Tonic Die called the Kensington Bag.
I think that this is the most gorgeous gift boxed bag I have ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing it with us Danielle.
Cheryl 'upcycled' this MDF Pizza box and entered it into their Village Fete Craft Competition.
Cheryl has covered the box with a beautiful background paper and then added so beautiful die cuts and a stunning arrangement of both Silk and Resin flowers with beaded sprays across that pretty Octagonal die cut. A pretty resin bird and coloured Chip board letters add the final touches to this amazing box. Cheryl received a 'Highly Recommended'' from the judges, which is a huge achievement for a first time at entering. I bet you can't wait for the next one Cheryl.
Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us.
Maria went to the Stamperama show with Karen and Nicky a couple of weeks ago and she sent me a photo of her shopping.
Firstly Maria, I can't wait to see that Sleigh when you have decorated it, I just know it will stunning!
You have bought a lovely selection of paper roses Maria, have a look at 'Wild Orchid Crafts' they will probably work out cheaper if you buy a few. That lace you bought is beautiful too.
I look forward to seeing all of your craft projects my lovely, thank you so much for sharing your shopping.
Michele's first two shopping photos are of some amazing bargains that she bought as bundles from CraftStash for her Mum-in-Law's Birthday, the great thing about them is you get so much for your money, making an amazing gift.
Michele's third photo is of the incredible collection of craft goodies that she purchased with the £50 voucher that she won recently. You have got some amazingly versatile stamp and die sets their Michele along with some essential glue and some lovely Sue Wilson dies. Those Apple Blossom stamps and dies will be perfect for man cards, you can make Phil a Guinness Bottle and have it as a Bottle shaped card with those dies. I love that embossing folder too.
Thank you so much for sharing your shopping with us my lovely.
Val went to a Bottle Decorating class a couple of weeks ago and this is the Amazing Bottle that she designed and created. It is decorated with a lovely phrase and Val has added tiny lights inside the bottle which makes it a really lovely piece of home décor.
I absolutely love your bottle Val, you definitely 'ace' any different craft that you turn your hand too, I love seeing your creations. I am also in love with that frame of cuteness beside your bottle!!
Thank you for sharing my lovely.
Thanks to all of you that featured in todays post for sharing your goodies with us.
Have a lovely weekend ladies,
love and hugs to all,
